News : Altavista Call Center Closing; 77 Jobs Affected
Altavista, VA, Oct 22, 2014 — Intersections Inc. will close its Altavista call center, affecting 77 jobs there starting in December, according to a notice filed with a state workforce-development agency.
The closure was "a result in decline in revenue caused by changes to the regulatory environment and financial sector," according to the company’s Virginia WARN notice, which notifies the state of a major layoff or closure.
The call center was established four years ago in Altavista, when the Chantilly-based company announced it would hire 250 people there. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved $100,000 for it.
Intersections provides consumer and corporate identity risk-management services, including identity theft, privacy and consumer protections.
A representative from Intersections could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
